President takes a self picture, rightwingers go insane, meanwhile...
WASHINGTON (Reuters)- Law enforcement agents are searching the home of a top aide to Republican Senator Lamar Alexander in connection with child pornography allegations, the Tennessee lawmaker said in a statement on Wednesday.
Alexander, citing the Senate's legal office, said investigators were searching the Washington home of Ryan Loskarn, his chief of staff.
"I am stunned, surprised and disappointed by what I have learned," he said, adding that Loskarn has been placed on leave from the senator's office, which is "fully cooperating with the investigation."
The senator gave no other details, and a call to Loskarn's home was not answered.
And this has WHAT to do with the Empty Suit taking his own photo at a funeral?

If there had been porn found on The One's Computer, he would claim he didn't know about it. Can't this other guy use the same excuse? "uuuhhhh, I didn't know, they didn't tell me," or

the infamous Hillarity Excuse: "What difference does it make."

Meanwhile, Iran will soon be nuclear thanks to Obama's Bent Knee Diplomacy. Neville Chamberlain would be as pleased as the crazy mullahs.

Charge: The U.S. government is giving away more than $2 billion in taxpayer dollars to Brazil's largest oil and gas company to drill for oil in Brazil.
Fact: The Bank has established a $2 billion financing opportunity for Petrobras to use solely for the purchase of American-made goods and services. So far, Ex-Im has approved $300 million to finance Petrobras' purchase of U.S. oil and gas equipment and services.
The funds go to American exporters as payment for their sales to the Petrobras.
If Petrobras fails to award contracts to U.S. companies for the remaining amount, it will not access those dollars.
Of note, the Bank is self-sustaining and no taxpayer dollars are involved.
Charge: The loans to Petrobras represent a giveaway of U.S. tax dollars.
Fact: Ex-Im is a self-funding, independent agency which operates at no cost to the taxpayer. Ex-Im does not make grants, and charges fees and interest for the financing it provides. In fact, since 2006 the Ex-Im Bank has generated more than $3.4 billion in revenue for U.S. taxpayers.
Charge: America is exporting jobs to Brazil as a result of the loans.
Fact: Only American made goods and services qualify for Ex-Im Bank loans or guarantees.
Ex-Im Bank only supports U.S. jobs by providing financing to ensure that American goods and services can compete on a level playing field against foreign competition.
Charge: The loan to Petrobras represents a reversal of the Obama Administration's policies on off-shore drilling.
Fact:There is no connection between federal policies on offshore drilling in U.S. waters and financing U.S. export sales for drilling by other countries. In fact, should Ex-Im Bank refuse to finance sales by U.S. companies it is likely that the sales will go instead to their foreign competitors.
It is notable that the Bank's bipartisan Board of Directors unanimously approved the preliminary commitment to Petrobras on April 14, 2009, before any Obama appointees joined the Bank. In fact, at the time the Bank's Board consisted of three Republicans and two Democrats, all of whom were appointed by President George W. Bush.

why must something be debunked more than once?
FACT
Petrobras is one of the most profitable oil companies in the world.

FACT
The oil reserves in the US operated by BP fit the category of "American-made goods and services".

FACT
Petrobras cancelled ALL drilling contracts with drilling contractors in Brasil. Thus, any notion that the 2 billion dollars will be used to buy what you would normally think "American-made goods and services" would be erroneous.

Obama is helping Petrobras gain an unfair advantage to buy the oil reserves in the United States owned by BP at a price below market value.

It's that simple.

Why is Petrobras the only oil company Obama is subsidizing?

Debunk this, moron.
In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee.
Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended up lasting twelve. My heart was severely damaged. Dr. Lee later told me the surgery was one of the most difficult of his career. He also said I only had a few days to live without the surgery.
Thanks to the excellent insurance I carried I was able to receive life-saving medical treatment at St. Louis University.
This week I found out I am going to lose my insurance. The company that carried me is leaving the Missouri market. I will have to find something else.
I am one of the millions who will be looking for new insurance. God willing, I will be able to keep my doctors at St. Louis University. I trust them. They saved my life. Please pray for me and the millions of working Americans who are going through this same ordeal.
Why is our government doing this to us?
The government did not make that insurance company leave the SL area.

These so-called "liberal" frauds won't touch this with a ten-foot pole.

Before Mandela became president of South Africa, blacks were living in what was called "bantustans", had very low education standards, were doing the menial work and the hard labor required, and had the boots of black police hired by the government on the back of their necks.

After Mandela murdered hundreds of black people on public streets by putting a tire soaked in gasoline around their necks and lighting it on fire, the blacks now live in what is no longer called "bantustans", have very low education standards, are doing the menial work and the hard labor required, and have the boots of black police hired by the government on the back of their necks.

South Africa is still a very dangerous place for a black person to travel through places where they are not known. The only change was the race of the oppressor.

This speaks volume ‘Say it ain’t so Sam!’

A new national poll has found that Obamacare's unpopularity increased the most among uninsured Americans!!

In an NBC/Wall Street Journal poll, "fully half of uninsured Americans now think the law was a bad idea. In September, 34% saw it that way!" I urge Liberals/Democrats to run on Obamacare in 2014!!
